(TSX:EXN) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced bought deal public offering of 10,925,000 units including 1,425,000 Units issued upon full exercise of the over-allotment option, at a price of $1.06 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $11.5 million. The Offering was underwritten by Cormark Securities Inc. as sole bookrunner and lead underwriter, on its own behalf and on behalf of PI Financial Corp., Sprott Capital Partners LP, Laurentian Bank Securities Inc. and Maison Placements Canada Inc.
As previously announced, each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each Warrant shall entitle the holder to acquire an additional Common Share at a price of $1.40 at any time on or before August 27, 2021.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering to fund exploration and capital expenditures at the Company’s Platosa Project in Durango, Mexico and Evolución Property in Zacatecas, Mexico, for corporate development and for general corporate purposes.
In connection with the Offering, insiders, including Eric Sprott, purchased an aggregate of 1,015,000 Units (for a total consideration of $1 million). Insider participation on the Offering is considered a “related party transaction” for the purposes of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions. The Company has relied on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 in respect of the insiders’ participation in the Offering as neither the fair market value (as determined under MI 61-101) of the subject matter of, nor the fair market value of the consideration for, the transaction, insofar as it involved related parties, exceeded 25% of the Company’s market capitalization as determined under MI 61-101.
The securities offered in the Offering have not been, and will not be, registered under the U.S. Securities Act or any U.S. state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, United States persons absent registration or any applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable U.S. state securities laws. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy securities in the United States, nor will there be any sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
